Lady Gaga Has a New Manager, Who Used to Work for Old Manager


Lady Gaga has a new manager. Bobby Campbell, who used to work for Gaga’s original manager, Troy Carter, is now in charge. I met Campbell, who left Carter on the same day as Gaga, last night at MusiCares before Gaga’s magnificent performance of “You’ve Got a Friend.” He’s relaxed, friendly, and young. The Mother Monster starts a big tour soon. In the fall, Sony will release Tony Bennett’s jazz duets album with Gaga as his partner. There is a lot to come in 2014.

Meanwhile, Troy Carter hasn’t missed a beat since splitting with Gaga. He’s managing both John Mayer and Miguel. The latter also wowed the crowd last night at MusiCares. Miguel may have will.i.iam do something on a new album he’s recording now for release this summer. Carter has big plans for Miguel, who’s already a big deal from his “Adorn” album and single. Carter’s also invested in a bunch of new media projects. He’s rocking post-Gaga!

UPDATE:  A source says: “Bobby was Chief Marketing Officer at Atom Factory since 2010. Before Atom Factory, he worked in product management at Interscope, and have been part of Gaga’s career since January 2008 prior to the release of Just Dance. Gaga asked him to be her manager in late November, after he left Atom Factory to remain working with her.”
